- Some improvements on UI layouts.
- Changed the name of the "Extract Drawing" filter to "Extract Line Drawing".
- Removed the "Tweet a notification to your twitter when published" button in the Preferences window.
- Now the Font list window automatically scrolls when the app inserts downloadable fonts so that the currently selected font keeps to be seen in the screen, except when you have already scrolled the window manually.

- Now a guidance message will be shown in the Pressure Adjustment Graph when the 3D touch is disabled in the iOS settings while you have selected it in the Settings window.

I don’t like the app because—  Sirfartsalot4)889$((;  1 star

I thought it would be a good app to use but I don’t really like it cause it doesn’t tell you how to use it you have to waste your money on a game that doesn’t work as well and it’s not my phone I have the iPhone XR I would not use this app the only thing I wanted this app for is to make some gacha life edits and it would not let me so prefer not fitting this app not trying to be mean or anything, I just don’t like the app as much I’m my opinion lol

I really love this drawing app! But, whenever I go to type my artist name (@grimmcrackerz) it takes a long time to type it and it annoys me so much. Please fix this issue! Thank you!


Port to Android PLEASE  Hyakumaki  5 star

Yes!!! This is the best paint app I’ve ever seen even when compared to the play store apps!

Aussie Unicorn

Worth it  Aussie Unicorn  5 star

I may not be a serious artist, but I do have a habit of editing for YouTube randomly. This is the perfect app. ❤️❤️⭐️⭐️


Really good illustration app  i_y  5 star

I have tried a few drawing app this is by far the most intuitive drawing comics and general illustration using iPad + pencil


Amazing  oxocats  5 star

I’ve been using this app for over 2 years now, and it’s never let me down! I recommend it to beginners on a low budget!

The Relle

Wannabe artists  The Relle  4 star

I use this app every day and it’s very easy to use. I’d just like some more brushes available. Like eye lashes and better glitter brushes.


cant save image in full size  tubbs4lyfe  1 star

i made a large image with 300dpi, which is 12mb. however when i download it or try to email it, it’s less than 1mb. this is a tshirt design and HAS to be the exact size and dpi i set it as, or it’ll print too small or blurry. why are you shrinking the file size without asking me?? i worked really hard on this image and it’s completely useless now because i can’t print it without destroying the quality


Video  pumpkindraws  4 star

I enjoy all the features in ibis paint but my obly issue is that i cant yse the video in yourube videos unless its flipped and no-one wants to watch a sideways video some maybe you could add a function that allows that


Great app  Nut5342  5 star

This app is one of the best drawing apps i have used, The 2 touch feature is really handy and the app overall is simple and easy to use

that couch potato

Good so far. One problem.  that couch potato  4 star

The app is really great, and the controls are so easy to use. The problem is that for whatever reason, the save image button wouldn’t appear on the app when i tried to save my artwork. I would really appreciate if you could fix this whenever that’s possible.


its great but..  Yandere-Chu  5 star

its great but if you’re updating to ibis paint from ibis paint x, you have to update your color palette. i have my own palette. other than that it’s fantastic!


So far so good  SeanMcShambles  4 star

Really good controls, nice and responsive. Wide arrange of tools - would really love ability to create folders for layers


Gives Procreate a run for its money!  Tattymatty.com  5 star

I have tried all the major art applications for the iPad Pro, so far Procreate was the only app I enjoyed until I found ibisPaint Excellent program I love the fact that you included a text box and a wide variety of fonts Is it possible to download more fonts into the program from outside sources? Can’t wait to continue learning the features Well done


Useful  Uptight.parasite  5 star

Like any art program, it takes a while to get used to the tools. I would say this is the best choice of drawing app you could get on the IOS AppStore.

alexandra pereira

Love it  alexandra pereira  5 star

I love drawing on here^^


Almost perfect!  Arf1968  4 star

This app is almost perfect! All it’s missing is a custom brush maker and a fur brush! Other than that it is great!


Please Consider Subscription Alternative  cassletang  5 star

Almost perfect app! Just one thing.. While the subscription model isn’t obligatory, please consider one time purchase for each new feature as an alternative to the subscription model. It’s very hard to stick with subscription model because of cumulative investment, which might not be affordable for most aspiring artists in the long run. Lots of people hate subscription model too, and they might stick to the current version even if they actually willing to pay few bucks for the new features that they use. From your perspective, you put lots of features frequently so one time purchase for each new feature would be very profitable too. I think like many people who love this app, we do care about the developer team, so thank you for reading this and I hope you would consider it. Thank you.


Really great, not perfect  maskrott  4 star

I would recommend using this app very much. It’s missing some miscellaneous features, but all the key important and useful features are present the lasso tool and layers takes a little getting used to but other than that it’s a really good well developed app.


Great!  Superdragon08xxxxx  5 star

I’ve been using this for a couple of years now and I love it. It’s great. It’s currently midnight and I don’t feel like talking that much, but just trust me.. this app is worth a try.


Best drawing app  [email protected]  5 star

This is the best app ever it is so easy to understand than any other app that I used I can save my drawings of my photos post them on my Deviantart Page


It’s pretty beast  konkerhavoks  5 star

Took me a few days but this app is legit


something that pisses me off  floofz  2 star

i have limited money on itunes due to there not being very many people that will pay for commissions with itunes giftcards,, well i had dropped my phone in my pool and all of my art was gone after getting the new one and the just putting the sim card into the new phone,, well something else happened that also pisses me off. i had payed for a addless version of your app and when i noticed there was adds at the top i became furious. not only did i lose over 160 pieces of art throughout this year and the last but i have to rebuy the addless version. thanks so much. you probably can’t help me but warning to those who payed for this. sadly being used to your controls and it taking too long for me to get used to any other platform i’m stuck still using ibispaint. i would like my money back but y’all probably won’t give it to me. please make a way to save your art to icloud its devastating that i lost so much. sincerely -allison (possum from ifunny)
